Top Writers Block

Biography

A group of writers who has decided to write stories together - just for the fun of it!
I am happy to announce that authors proceeds have now gone to Sea Shepherd.fr every time Smashwords has made a payment! Thank you to those who have supported the group.

In the the short story, The Trouble with Thorndyke,' each has written a chapter following the story's thread but has no idea where the next chapter will lead! The writer picking up the thread has gone where he will as long as the continuity of the story was respected.
The authors of 'The Trouble with Thorndyke' are : Anna Scott Graham, Barnaby Wilde, Gary Weston, Jeffra Hays & Suzy Stewart Dubot.
It was agreed amongst us that proceeds from 'The Trouble with Thorndyke' will go to the international ocean protection charity Sea Shepherd.

The following collections are all written on a theme. 'Painted Door' was the first and as you can see, others have followed. Each author contributes when he has the time, so some of the collections have as many as twelve authors participating.
All the Top Writers Block's proceeds will go to Sea Shepherd, so by buying you are helping to keep our oceans alive!
